I think Detective John Carter of Mars is right it is most likely that you still have something on your system that caused this download request

It´s also possible that some browser add-on wanted to download an update ... but then again .. if it dosn´t show any name ... better safe than sorry

Hi,

I had a really nasty virus. But my system was certified as 100% clean by the anti-virus manufacturer after major diagnostics and 6 days work. Who knows, it could have been something else. To test that page you would need exactly the same configuration as me (firefox 3.6.16 on windows XP) and to be really sure you would examine the html page and all the files on it. Normally i would try it on a bunch of systems, but I can't afford to lose anymore time to fighting virusses, hackers and the like.

Just trying to help, I'll let you know if I get a peep of anything else. Free upload sites are one of the categories that are easily infected.

That movie is quite likely not PD anyway, but that's neither here nor there :-)

Well... ther´s a reason why this litle bugger are called Trojan Horses after the ancient greek poem The Iliad written ~500BC

All you can do with the programs you´r using and the hours of hunting and repairing is to SMASH THE EMPTY WOODEN HORSE
all the soldiers that were inside of it have already taken over key possition of your castle and even open the front gate to let more soldiers in

To stay within this picture.

The only realistic way to be king of your castle again would be to destroy this castle completely and build a new and better protected one.

LOL these days they are more like zombies. Infecting other files and getting them to help in their dirty work.

I already partially rebuilt. In the future, I will let Helen live in the Castle of Linux, so when the attackers come to take her, their Trojan Horses will be smashed to kindling.
